                     Intensive Research Program in
           Discrete, Combinatorial and Computational Geometry
               April 16 – June 8, 2018 - Barcelona, Spain



- Early registration deadline approaching: February 28, 2018.

- Accommodation on campus is running out, book yours soon!

- The preliminary program is online.


The program will consist of 8 weeks of activities focused on hot topics
in discrete, combinatorial and computational geometry.
It has been designed to be interesting to researchers at all career
stages, by combining learning opportunities and research collaboration
chances in problems of theoretical nature in combinatorial and discrete
geometry, algorithmic problems from computational geometry, and
implementation issues in specialized software.
